Green Impact Finance

The sustainable world of the future needs new solutions. We believe that commitment to the environment and society can be combined with digital innovations and entrepreneurial action to create sustainable added value.

FOCUS

We support projects/startups that use new technologies to promote positive change. We focus on the German-speaking market and support financing arrangements from upwards of 500,000 EUR.

SERVICES

We accompany entrepreneurs towards successfully securing funding (seed, early stage, growth capital), offer practical advice and answer questions about sustainable business models and financing.

1. Coaching

We prepare you for the financing process and answer questions to help you carry it out in an independent and goal-oriented way, for example:

  • How does a round of financing generally proceed?
  • How can you calculate the amount of capital that you need in order to reach your goals? 
  • What documents do you have to prepare in order to be successfully funded?
  • Which investor is a good fit for you and your goals?
  • What aspects are particularly important in order for you to retain the authority to give instructions after receiving financing?

2. Accompanying Consultation

As a financing process can often take between six and nine months, we offer you practical help so that you can continue focusing on your business operations. In order for you to achieve the best possible results, we offer, in close consultation, support in:

  • Creating teasers, pitch decks and information memorandums
  • Identifying potential financial or strategic investors using a long list
  • Approaching selected investors from the short list 
  • Setting up a virtual data room
  • Presenting
  • Conducting negotiations with potential investors.

3. Capital

Alongside our consultation services, in certain cases we ourselves invest in the form of “Skill for Equity” (remuneration for our consulting services in the form of shares in the company) or with our own capital. This depends on the amount of financing required and how well the company fits into our existing portfolio.
